OK Geography is a little off, I still concider cyprus is part of the
island area around Greece, but if cyprus is not classified as part of
Europe then Turkey should also move to asia since that is designated as
'Middle East' rather than 'Europe'. My point is on what basis is the
statement "Europe/Nicosia link was a mistake" made?
